Jayam Ravi to Sport Salt-and-Pepper Look for the First Time in His Career
Actor Jayam Ravi has chosen to embrace his greys for his upcoming film Siren, directed by Antony Bhagyaraj.
For the first time in his career, Tamil actor Jayam Ravi will be seen sporting a salt-and-pepper look in his upcoming film, Siren. Directed by debutant director Antony Bhagyaraj, the film showcases Ravi in the role of a middle-aged person who conveys aggression through his appearance rather than his words.
Speaking about the decision to give Ravi a natural salt-and-pepper look, Antony Bhagyaraj said, “I had envisioned the character to be sporting grey hair. Jayam Ravi was doing Ponniyin Selvan at that time, for which he had grown his hair. So far, very few stars in Kollywood have sported natural grey hair, but he was particular that we should go for a natural salt-and-pepper look instead of opting for dyes.”
To create this unique look, Antony collaborated with his team to design illustrations that would suit the actor. “I wanted a grey-haired man with a beard. We went with a closely cropped hairstyle. The usual team of makeup persons who work with Jayam Ravi worked on this new look,” he informed.
Interestingly, apart from the salt-and-pepper look, Jayam Ravi will also be seen in another role in the film, where he will have a youthful appearance. Antony Bhagyaraj shared, “That one will be a total contrast to this. In fact, Jayam Ravi has worked hard on his body language and dialogue delivery to make it stand apart. In scenes where both the characters appear together, you will feel like you are watching two different actors performing.”
Siren, which is currently in the post-production stage, features Keerthy Suresh and Anupama Parameswaran as the female leads. The film promises to be a visual treat for the audience, with Jayam Ravi showcasing his versatility through two contrasting roles.
With his decision to embrace his greys, Jayam Ravi joins the league of few stars in the Tamil film industry who have sported natural grey hair. This unique choice not only adds authenticity to his character but also sets him apart from his contemporaries.
As the film gears up for its release, fans are eagerly waiting to witness Jayam Ravi’s remarkable transformation and his ability to bring two distinct characters to life on the big screen.
To wind everything up, Jayam Ravi’s decision to sport a salt-and-pepper look for the first time in his career in the film Siren has generated immense excitement among his fans. Directed by Antony Bhagyaraj, the film showcases Ravi’s versatility as an actor, with him portraying both a middle-aged character and a youthful one.
